Trebuchet Launcher (official CM9 Launcher) alpha build released for Android 4.0.3

Trebuchet Launcher (official CM9 Launcher) alpha build released for Android 4.0.3

The genius developers behind the fabulous Cyanogen mod are at it again with their latest tease, the official Ice Cream Sandwich Trebuchet Launcher.  As expected, the launcher requires root access and you must be running ICS 4.0.3.  Keep in mind this is only an ALPHA release!

Both the apk file and flashable  zip file are available over in the XDA thread. HTC has yet to release any Android 4.0 updates for their phones, but if you’re one of those who hangs around the XDA-Developers site, it’s not unreasonable to assume you have tested out one of the dozens of beta Android 4.0 builds that developers have cooked up over the past month.

If you give the Trebuchet Launcher a try, make sure to let us know how it runs on your HTC device!

Available Features

  • Custom number of Homescreens
  • Enable/Disable Persistent Search Bar
  • Separated Apps/Widgets in Drawer
  • Ability to resize any Widget
  • Show and Fade Scrolling Indicator in Homescreen and Drawer
  • Enable/Disable Auto-Rotate
  • Drawer Apps Sorting (Title, Install date)

Planned Features

  • Infinite scrolling
  • Dock (Custom pages and size)
  • Transition Effects (Homescreen and Drawer)
  • Backup and Restore

    Hi!

    thanks, but what are the differences between ICS and this launcher?

    :) Thanks

      This launcher only work in for ICS devices running on Android 4.0.3

      the list of features are all things that are not available on the stock launcher. They basically took what Google made and added more customization options.
